Is anyone NOT upgrading at the resort?

I had to compare all three packages side by side to see which one ended up being the best for the money once we added things.
We are also not upgrading to the honeymoon suite since we plan to go to another resort for a couple of days after the wedding. Where ever we go we will get a nice room.

I started contacting brides on tripadvisor & many of them did not upgrade & said it was great. So, I felt more comfortable that I could just show up, let the WC at the hotel do everything & just get married. I'm really excited about planning the adventures & OOT bags, but I've never been interested in picking out decorations & flowers. I also have read enough reviews to trust that what they do standard will be beautiful. I'm also trying to keep it as inexpensive as possible.
I think some people upgrade because they really enjoy being involved in planning those parts of the wedding. So I think it's more of a personal choice.

Again, on a budget, I don't want to pay for the honeymoon suite. We don't need a really fancy room. We are still used to traveling cheap. We shared a bed smaller than a twin in Paris. Our last vacation we slept on the world's worst futon.

I booked a month or so ago and they said something about meeting with them when we get there to finalize the plans and that sounded great to me! I am supposed to email closer to the date with colors and stuff, but it seemed that the majority of it would be decided when I got there. But it seems that everyone is looking for outside of the resorts and upgrades and whatnot. I didn't want to just let it go and then go crazy in 7 months when there is barely time ti fix it. Oh decisions, decisions.

I think it depends on how much control you want. Some people have all these ideas of how they want their tables to look at the reception, the types of flowers they want, etc. I'm excited to show up, have a meeting & pick stuff out then. I like that I can use the time I'm saving by not planning that stuff, to research all the activities in the area. That I want to have planned out perfectly.

As for the room, because of the number of rooms we have booked so far, we have been upgraded to the Royal Service room and have 2 rooms free (so we can help pay for our bridal party with those free rooms!)
